Default Google Voice app

When I try to download the Google Voice app from the market I get the error:

There are no matches in Android market for the search:
pname:com.google.android.apps.googlevoice


I have the WWE edition and I am in the USA. Is Google Voice app compatible with the Tattoo?

I don't know about using it on the Tattoo, but since it is Android 1.6, it should work. If you use the program 'Barcode Scanner' and scan the barcode on the following linked site, you might get to the program. Google Voice v0.2.8 Application for Android | Communication

Voicesearch is not the same as Google Voice. It works fine though!

Default Getting Google Voice via Android SDK

OK, so I have been trying to get google voice setup in a nice way to work on my Tattoo and once I completely figure out what the hell I did I'll be sure to post a full walkthrough.

I tried like hell to get the apk file from anywhere online. Google would not provide the file so I decided to turn to the only other android device I had: the SDK emulator on my Mac.

The avd I was using was modified to be able to download content from the "normal" marketplace. I downloaded and installed the Google Voice app and started to wonder if I could open the userdata.img file. luckily, I didn't have to.

With the emulator running:
$ ./adb devices (to get the emulator ID)
$ ./adb -s emulator-XXXX pull /data ./ (dump the data folder to the previous directory on my computer)

I then quit the emulator and connected my Tattoo:
$ ./adb install com.google.android.apps.googlevoice.apk

So let me save you all the headache and simply say...

this is where you can find the Google Voice APK file

But I think I might be onto something that will give easier access to non-tattoo approved apps in the Market place.

The easiest way is to actually download it directly onto your phone by opening this page up in Browser and let Android do the legwork. You have to make sure to check off Settings->Applications->Unknown Sources in the phone first though.

That's the easiest way.The other way is by installing the SDK and using the adb application with the phone connected:

adb install <path of application file on computer>
